Excerpt

I am writing these few lines to beg the kindly reader to remember the many difficulties to be encountered in the writing down of the recollections of a long life.

Many of these must of necessity be devoid of interest, whilst much well worth chronicling eludes all memory. As far as possible, I have attempted to recall to mind anything likely to appear amusing or curious about the many clever and delightful people whom it has been my good fortune to meet, and who, alas! have now for the most part passed away. Many of my reminiscences, I fear, are but trivial and even commonplace, but I have done my best, and therefore feel sure that no unduly harsh criticism will be meted out to one who has lived from the day of the post-chaise into that of the motor-car--a form of locomotion, by the way, to which I am by no means averse.

One or two of my friends have rendered invaluable assistance by reviving memories of past days--to these I tender my sincere thanks; and now, with every hope that this book will receive a lenient reception, I say good-bye.

D. N.

July, 1906.
